The seminar on "EU Substantive Criminal Law-PIF Crimes" organised by EIPA will take place on 6 March 2024 followed by a half day visit of CJEU on 7 March 2024 in Luxembourg.

The objective of the seminar is to provide an update on the case law of the CJEU in relation to the crimes against the financial interest of the EU. PIF crimes including fraud – corruption - money laundering, - misappropriation in relation to the management of EU funds and VAT fraud have been criminalized at the European level since long generating ample case law, hence it is important that legal practitioners are made aware of the latest jurisprudence of the Court which is relevant for their professional work.

The seminar is especially interesting for legal practitioners working in the field of criminal law, dealing with cross-border criminal cases, but is also of relevance to those having a particular interest in the EU Area of Freedom Security and Justice, based on the principles of mutual recognition and mutual trust.

Participants will have a nuanced understanding of the practical insights about the working structures and functions of the EPPO and explains how participating and non-participating EU Member States cooperate with the EPPO in winding up crimes against the EU’s financial interest.
